Danny Kirwan, Fleetwood Mac guitarist, 68.

I kind-of knew him. He was a good guy, he paid me to do some work in his home studio once. I was out of contract, about to give up, but he was one of the good guys that give you hope in such a situation. I kept plugging away for another 6 months off the back of that.

Damn, 68 is young.

:( I saw that on Fleetwood Mac's FB page. I gave them my condolences. Irritatingly the profile admin had to make a post reminding readers that they would be blocked if they harassed the band about him, because they were. :furious:

I wrote a song yesterday, actually, as tribute to those our own community here has lost. It has lyrics and music although it'd need to be looked at by actual musicians to arrange, produce, and record it. I'm waiting on a friend's input as to how to share it without me messing stuff up copyright-wise (I'd like it to be recorded by my Clubhouse's band, Organized Chaos, and any proceeds to go to NAMI, or something along those lines), but so far she hasn't said anything. Unless you have any ideas, Roy? I mean obviously it's about our community and you are a recording artist, so I imagine you know about it too. I just don't want to accidentally do something that would render it public-domain or let someone else claim copyright or something foolish like that. I usually share my "music" publicly but this is a bit different.

D.J. Fontana, Elvis' drummer, 87.

How the hell did Elvis' drummer make it to 87?

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Every time I hear his name I think of this TV pilot that never got made into a series.

It was a big hit in our family.

I Tell You It's Burt Reynolds.

Gaby's Deli in London

Why am I posting this in RIP?

Gaby's has been in the West End for over 50 years, just off Leicester Square. They do awesome salt beef sarnies, and great falafels, and their lasagne is rather special too.

They survived an attempt to force them out a few years ago, in part because so many people, including the likes of Simon Callow, Vanessa Redgrave, Miriam Margolyes and Alex James rallied round.

But now the owner, 82 year old Gaby Elyahou is retiring, and his nephew (a sprightly 72) feels he can no longer hold the fort against the likes of chain restaurants who can pay higher rents.

Truly the end of an era. Deserves a proper obituary I think

William Goldman, screenwriter and author of The Princess Bride, 87

It appears he is all dead, not mostly dead
